X-Men: Days Of Future Past Review

They are back!!!!
X-Men: Days Of Future Past Review - James mcAvoy, Michel Fassbender, Patrick Steward, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page and moreeeeeee in one mutant flick??? 
Wanna play? 
Do not walk into the cinema late or else you will be kicking yourself for missing one of the most awesome movie opening of the year. Its action packed from the word go! After the Cuban crisis in the first movie, X-Men : First Class, thing spiral down for the mutants when Prof X (Charles) [James McAvoy as the younger version & Patrick Steward as the wrinkler version] gives up on trying to make the humans understand about the mutant while Magneto (Erik) [Michael Fassbender as the younger version & Ian McKellen as the older version) get captured for killing a President while Mystique (Raven) [Jennifer Lawrence] are on her own mission to take revenge over the humans. The bleak future brings both former friends turned foe, Charles & Erik together to seek help from Kitty (Ellen Page) who can ‘travel’ back and forth time to change the course of history. Since both Prof X and Magneto are too weak to make the journey, Wolverin (Logan) [Hugh Jackman] volunteers to stop Mystique from committing a murder that would change the world. It’s not a walk in the park as the mutants have to face a new foe called Sentinel created by Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage). Wolverin meets with younger version of the mutants and tries to convince them to work together for the good of the world. With time running out in both past and future can the impending war be stopped or will it be the end of a species or the planet altogether? #amekko….no spoilers so go watch!
I believe I can flyyyyyyyyyyyyy.....or float or levitate? 
Where the heck do I start? I was blown away with X-Men: First Class when my favourites joined the cast as the younger version of the mutants. I still watch it because even after all this years, it is one of the best X-Men movies ever made…until….BOOM! Days of Future Past upstaging it within minutes the movie starts! Some of the old cast are there while some have demise but its damn fun spotting your preferred actor or actress coming on screen one after another! Despite the time limitation, some had longer scenes but the short timed roles simply delivered their part when they need to. I assume the fan darlings for this time will the Quicksilver (Peter) [Evan Peters].  I bet you will fall in love with him so fast-pun intended you won’t even have time to Blink-another pun for the character (Fan Bingbing). The special effects were top notch, music, graphic, acting….heck! Simply put…I can’t put a finger on any flaws. Perhaps after few more views, I might notice some holes here and there but man! This X-Men exceeds all expectation and sets the bar high for the upcoming sequel in 2016 "X-Men: Apocalypse"!!! Wiiiiiiiiiiiiii! I can’t wait already!!!
Can you name them all? 
I was not a fan of X-Men, in fact I dislike these kinda comic character but Bryan Singer converted me into a fan with his brilliant vision to bring fan favourites into the big screen. Screw The Land Stand and latest Wolverin, this flick is on a class of its own. Movie aside, I still have no idea if humans to turned into mutants. How would we react? I mean it is part of evolution but still…would we want to give up our place for something more evolved or perish trying to defend ourselves? Go figure!
